COLLAGEN BOOSTER FACIAL-IPL
IPL (intensive pulsed light) therapy delivers pulses of light that helps in the removal of hair, the treatment of pigmentation and to boost collagen. It is a non-invasive treatment that is suitable to use on most areas of the body.
This painless treatment is used to smooth fine lines, has no downtime and is often combined with Microdermabrasion or other facials for even better results.
HOW INTENSE PULSE LIGHT (IPL) WORKS
IPL Facial Collagen Boost works in 3 powerful and effective ways;
- IPL photo rejuvenation is a safe light-based therapy that improves the overall condition of your skin. IPL increases collagen production naturally, decreases redness and broken capillaries and lightens pigmentation and melasma (dark skin discolouration).
- IPL treats the damaged superficial layer of your skin, while delivering thermal energy to deeper tissue. Treating the dermis raises the heat in the skin by 10 degrees; your skin then thinks there’s a wound on the surface (which there isn’t) and starts to send collagen to the surface and stimulates the fibroblasts (cells that make collagen).
- The Intense Pulsed Light is attracted to the browns, reds, and deeper collagen tissues. The heat generated from the light targets and vaporizes the browns, coagulates the reds, and heats the deeper collagen tissues. The body’s healing mechanisms then takes over and sloughs off the browns, absorbs the reds, and thickens the collagen fibres.
